The team show you their pets for the Lush Prize

As I write twitter is going crazy under the hashtag #animalperson as people post their pictures of pets in support of the Lush Prize.

Ethical Consumer fancied a bit of the action so here are some photos of us with our pets and our mascot!

katy cat

This is Katy with a Moroccan street kitten. Technically not a pet but I'm sure she would have taken it home if she could!




This is Jane with her cat Alfie.


i love chickens

Here is Heather with her pet Portugese chickens (now deceased). She assures us they were not battery reared broilers!




And finally we have our mascot Martha. She came and lived with us in the office two days a week because she didn't like being left at home on her own. AHHH Bless.


Tweet photos of yourself with pets and animals now with the hashtag #animalperson for your chance to win some great prizes from Lush. Tag us as well (@ec_magazine) so we can have a look at your pics.

Don't forget tomorrow's event is at The Digital Dissection Dining Room, The Yard, 89 Worship Street, EC2A 2BF. Midday till midnight on Thursday 15th November, 2012.
